New Things

Today I had my first serious singing lesson and on Friday I will be giving my first solo performance as a story teller at the Vestry House Museum in Walthamstow for their Museums at Night Evening. I will be telling the story of how Epping Forest was saved from enclosure by an act of Parliament that laid down that the Conservators of the forest  “shall at all times keep Epping Forest unenclosed and unbuilt on as an open space for the recreation and enjoyment of the people,” thanks very much to the courage and determination of Thomas Willingale of Loughton, his family, and fellow holders of Lopping Rights. So perhaps Old Dogs can learn new tricks after all.
